Back to the Future to Get Live Orchestra Screenings

Next summer, Back to the Future will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Hard to believe that much time has passed, but it still holds up very well, and we’re sure there’s going to be quite a few things in the works to celebrate the film’s legacy.

There have been reports of a Back to the Future musical with Glen Ballard, the producer and songwriter behind Alanis Morrisette’s Jagged Little Pill album, writing the music. There will also be screenings of the movie a live orchestra to celebrate the movie’s third decade.

As Variety tells us, it will be like a silent movie where the music composed by Alan Silvestri will be left out, and a live orchestra will perform the music in select concert halls. This has apparently been done before with West Side Story, Star Trek, and Home Alone. Variety also tells us that Silvestri will be composing new music for the film as well.

All we can say is, it’s great to see that Back to the Future is still going strong after all this time. We’re not surprised because we loved it then, and we still love it today.
